My husband and I had the pleasure of eating at this lovely german meets french restaurant. It was a very quiet and cold Monday night so we were very lucky to be waited on hand and foot by the lovely lady owner. We were given English and German menus and the lady spoke English very well and was only too helpful. We were given a complementary entree - a delicious morsel of tuna with gorgeous flavours on the side. My husband ordered the lamb and I ordered the spring chicken. Meals were the right size in my opinion -we left nothing to waste. You could tell everything was made fresh includin the chocolate fondant. I would highly recommend!

They have some grate dishes. Very good for business dinner. The owner and waiters are really professional and will offer the best they have. The products are usually from the market and fresh

The food is really the focus and you can taste it. Located in an office building, but don't let that change your mind. Though it's an elegant dining space and the presentation is modern - this is actually a 'mom&pop' restaurant with the pop doing the cooking and mom doing much of the serving. They do an awesome job and you will be well taken care of. It's a relaxed and warm dining experience. They do a great job in explaining what is on the menu and why it's there. Much thought goes into their menu. Try some of the game dishes and go for the lemon vodka sorbet (ZING!).

Went to Gargantua last Autumn with my boyfriend and ordered each a 4-menu course aka Gargantua pairings for 55 euro...it was very tasty but we couldn't finish all the dishes...
The cuisine is German with a French influence ...a pleasant warm interior, with a Provençal chandelier as a centerpiece. The wife of the chef was serving as well, making the place less formal and relaxed for the name it has...all in all it was a good, pricy experience....booking is advisable!

Fantastic and elegant German restaurant. The outside area is extremely pleasant, the location is great and the service was first-class. A great evening out.
